Hulett Environmental Services offers the following tips to help prevent contact with spiders: • Avoid keeping clothing and shoes on the floor, especially if in an area known for spiders; consider storing inside plastic containers. • Seal cracks and crevices around the home. • Vacuum/sweep away webs in and around the home. • Shake out all clothing that has been in the laundry basket before wearing/washing. • Keep garages, attics and basements clean and clutter free. • If a spider bites you, contact your primary care physician for medical advice. • If you have an infestation in your home, contact a licensed pest control professional to inspect and treat the pest problem.
